Uh, men's hoops just lost to Ball State

Couldn't see it...what the hell happened?


This is why we can't have nice things!

I thought for about the 1000th time since 1993. I guess disappointment is a fundamental part of being a sports fan.


We just couldn't rebound tonight

24 for us, 37 for them.



Couldn’t? More likely we just wouldn’t.

That was basically it.

No blocking out and no second chance pts compared to about 18-20 follow up lay ins by Ball St. it didn’t help that ND couldn’t hit water falling out of a boat in the 1st half.


Didn't see it either

But Ball St. put up 80 points and only shot 33% from 3, so its not like we ran into a bunch of lucky bombers.

What a hideous loss.


You can’t secure a tourney 3-seed in the first month

But you can certainly lose one. That loss will be held against us all season and knock us down a seed lower than we should be in the tournament.

And as you noted, Ball State didn’t get lucky, they thoroughly outplayed us. They had 2 big men that dominated the glass on both ends and didn’t miss when they got within 5 feet of the hoop, which was often. We struggled from the line and committed a lot of dumb fouls. As bad a game as we’ve played in years.
